Paint360

a family-run social enterprise

Paint360 is a family-run social enterprise based in Cradley Heath, near Birmingham.

The company works with household waste recycling centres across the UK to recycle waste paint, while creating jobs for young people facing barriers to employment.

Amey was one of the first large corporates to work with Paint360, when it placed initial orders five years ago.

In 2019 alone, Amey purchased around 10,000 litres of recycled paint from Paint360, for use on its highways and prisons contracts across the UK.

This has resulted in:

  • Amey saving 13.16 tonnes of CO². That’s about the same weight as 12 Ford Fiestas. It’s the same level of emissions as driving a van carbon free for 50,635 miles*
  • Paint360 gaining brand profile by working in partnership with a £2.2 billion company
  • Amey contributing to Paint360’s pipeline of work, which ensures social value goals are sustainable. In the last seven years, Paint360 has created jobs for 34 young people who are ex-offenders or long-term unemployed in the Black Country, which is home to higher than average levels of economic deprivation.
